UKIAH — Denisha Lundy poured in 19 points, including four 3-pointers, as the Solano Community College women’s basketball team opened up a 14-0 lead en route to a 91-63 Bay Valley Conference victory over Mendocino, Thursday.
Taylor Hamilton added 17 points for the Falcons (13-4, 4-0 BVC), while Ariel Clay had 10 and Justice Robinson eight.
“We broke out of the gate 14-0,” Solano coach Matt Borchert said. “Mendocino had to call two timeouts and we kind of rolled from there.”
The Falcons led 49-32 at the half and extended it to the final 28-point margin.
“Our ball movement was awesome,” Borchert said. “They started in man-to-man (defense) and quickly went to a zone. We shot it really well. Our pressure defense bothered them quite a bit.”
Solano next plays Los Medanos of Pittsburg, Saturday, at 5:30 p.m., on City Youth Sports Night. Youth who wear their city league or AAU team jersey will get in for free.
